As in previous years, the LPCB Red Book Pavilion was a prominent feature of Firex International at London Excel on 21-23 June. This year we also had a Pavilion in the IFSEC show which is reported below. The first two days were extremely busy, which was evident in the level of ambient noise! As ever, our Red Book listings were of interest to specifiers such as insurers, facilities managers and consultants.
Particular interest was shown in our new suppression standards:-
LPS 1283 – Watermist systems for use in commercial low hazard occupancies
LPS 1655 – Personal protection water mist systems
We took the opportunity to present Paradox Hellas with an LPCB certificate for their Smart X addressable control panel (photo right).
We were heavily involved in the conference programme, with presentations taking place in the FIREX Expertise & Guidance theatre. A copy of each of the following presentations will be available to download from our website shortly:
Debbie Smith OBE, MD of BRE Global, was invited to be a panel member at the BREXIT debate at show on the last day of the show. Debbie’s co-speakers, bastions of the fire and security industry, were:-
Martin Harvey, Chair, FIA
James Kelly, CEO, BSIA
Dave Wilkinson, Technical Director, BSIA
Enzo Peduzzi, President, Euralarm
Alan Brinson, Executive Director, European Fire Sprinkler Network
